threat. the obama administration has focused almost entirely on al qaeda. believing people when they came in and said, look, the only people who can actually give you advice on dealing with these radical folks are islamic believers, he so you must get advice from us. form partnerships with us, let us give you advice, let us tell you how to deal with this threat. and they made great inroads in this administration in that approach. but the blindness of the larger jihadist threat, the enterprise that is being pursued by the muslim brotherhood abroad, has resulted in the practice of drone delivered assassinations of al qaeda figures with what many are questioning or arguing is due process without that. and this administration's repeated declaration that al qaeda is being defeated. they know not of what they speak. the idea that al qaeda is being defeated is helping recruit others who are radical jihadists, because they are able to point to a united states administration that is so blind and so uninformed of what really is going on that they think al qaeda's on the decline when radical jihad i

the obama administration, an international field some change is coming to haiti. . jobs have been created, schools have been built, yet, gender-based violence remains severe. today i'm introducing a resolution calling attention to the plight of haitian women and children and calling for action on their behalf. with the strategy to prevent gender-based violence, the obama administration is on the right track. congress and the administration must ensure robust funding for these initiatives, including the u.s. agency of international development, gender equality and female empowerment policy to meet the continuing need. for me, this issue is personal. i've seen the tent cities firsthand. i have spoken with the women. i have counseled the victims and witnessed the scars of indignation and pain. i feel the anguish in my bones. but i also feel the hope. let's work together to ensure that no woman in haiti, no woman in this hemisphere or in this world has to bear the indignity of sexual violence. thank you, mr. speaker. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoma

dropping. >> let me just tell you, first of all, i challenged the bush administration and the obama administration equally on the constitutional issues. my concern here is that they're not making america any safer, when 15% of the people hit by drone strikes are innocent civilians, you're creating a lot of animosity. it's making america more vulnerable. not less vulnerable. and beyond all that, they're violating the 4th, 5th and the 14th amendment of the constitution. i don't know if they teach pretzel making at harvard law school, but what they've done here is twist the constitution into a pretzel and that's not appropriate. >> steve: where is the outrage? five years ago there was plenty of outrage, mainstream media and the left. take a look at this right here. 144, screen left, democrats questioned george w. bush on gitmo and interrogation. 18 had questions for him regarding eavesdropping and parts of the patriot act. only 8 democrats are questioning the president with these drone strikes where people are getting killed. >> well, there is no question that a party wants to support

who pays? james rosen in d.c. >> you and me shep, as always. good evening. obama administration officials say the cost involved here will be neil even for the insurers providing the contraception because increased access to birth control they say means hugely reduced medical costs in the long run. under the rules proposed by kathleen sebelius today. the insurers will be able to deduct the cost from the user fees they pay the government for obama care's healthcare exchanges. that means taxpayers will foot the bill say critics or else the insurers are apt to pass the cause back to the now exempted religious employers. also not covered by new proposed rules are private sector companies with religious objections. that means lawsuits like the one filed by the hobby lobby which could face fines of over a million dollars a day will likely snake their way towards the supreme court. now, there will be a period of 60 days of public comment with these proposed rules. but they are expected to be finalized by the summer. shep? >> shepard: james rosen a new study reports that more of our vete

of the questions were about drones and the obama administration's policy. nobody tougher on john brennan, asking better questions yesterday than our guest, senate ron wyden from oregon. good morning, senator. good to see you again. >> great to be on your show. as a basketball player i love the full court press. >> indeed. senator, you had written this letter. i saw you earlier this week. you told me you were sending this letter with 11 other senators to the white house saying we want you to release all of the memos related to drone policy. they did respond at least in kind. are you satisfied with what you received so far? >> bill, when the president called, it was clear that the president wanted to change course, and i give him credit for what is clearly an encouraging first step. >> that's right. he called you in response to that letter. didn't he? >> he did. and he also is offering up another very constructive idea. >> that's trying to start in the weeks ahead a dialogue with the public with respect to these issues. applying our checks and balances t

. martha: what do you think it tells us about the obama administration's policy towards the war on terror? >> i think a couple of things. they don't want to get their fingers dirty. they don't want american casualties. known wants that. the problem i think is three in the whole drone war idea, number one we may have been very good at the very beginning when we were taking out key people in very difficult to reach parts of pakistan and afghanistan but we've now expanded that drone war and are the third thing martha that worries me probably more than anything we are lowering the threshold of when we use force. it's an important thing to have americans in the loop. by doing something where no americans are at risk. martha: it negates your ability to get intelligence from any of these individuals. >> yeah, they are dead. martha: we know the president is not fond of the gitmo model. it raises a lot of questions about the most useful way to apprehend people and get information from them. as far as we know, right we are talking about anwar al-awlaki, and american-born citizen who we know was an
